Deck Description

Splinter Twin is a raw combo deck, which gives you that "instant win" condition.

It is not as versatile as Melira Pod, but it has far more cards which revolves around getting out your combo.

How to Play

Splinter Twin + Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch = Infinite creatures with haste
Kiki-Jiki + Pestermite/Deceiver Exarch = Infinite creatures with haste

Everything else in this deck is there to harass your opponent until you get your combo out.

Keep in mind that both Pestermite and Deceiver Exarch have flash.

Deck discussion for Splinter Twin

What exactly is the use of Punishing Fire here? And why are you splashing green just for Firespout? Isnt it easier to just run Slagstorm?
Also your wallet will pop from Remand+Spellskite+Kiki. Since you use Preordain and Ponder I assume this is not modern tournament deck so you can go easy with something like Rune Snag or Memory Lapse instead of Remand.
Also I warn you, this is a competitive combo so your friend might stop playing with you. :-) That happened to me when I constructed Painter-Stone deck :-)

Also, if you're trying to make this modern competitive grab those scalding tarns and consider the card boomerang. This deck is all about stalling until you combo out.

I like the combo Punishing Fire and Grove of the Burnwillows. Remand is there because it card draw ability get my combo out more easily. I agree that this is not a very social deck :) But sometime we just whip out combo decks like Thopter, Splinter, Pod and Pebbles just for fun :D The decks I post are mostly decks I've already got stacked up

Remand is my favorite counterspell ever printed. Tempo counter numero uno!

I agree, and it works especially well in combo decks, where the aim is to just stall your opponent :)

I run it in an American Geist list, and it's like a Time Walk basically. Great in conjunction with mana leak too.

Yes, your deck looked good :)

Thanks! I finally finished putting the deck together. Took FOREVER. It handles rather nicely now though.
